Re: Pythium Strategies

I have experience,but only with early/small games. . . 4 communicants/2 casters is a good combo, because the casters get +2 levels and, generally, fatigue means nearly nothing to them.

Would...

Re: The Dominions 3: \"Wishlist\"

I think this has been gone over somewhat, but adding to "Cast spells" (last thing scripted) "Cast offensive", "Cast support" and possibly "Cast personal defensive".

Because sometimes I want my...

Re: regen

Possible bug, possible terrible luck: I sent a Scorpion King in vs. a handful of Ulmites. Scorp cast Personal Regen and went to attack. Did not seem to regenerate [or took more damage than I...

Re: Super-Combatants

Hmm. I'm now considering a batch of dwarven-booted Arco mystics with cybereyes.

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

I'm not worried about Dominion as long as I have a major advantage on research- I don't think faith and legions can compete with dozens of uparmored Trolls and hundreds of flying knives. I have...

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

Ivarr considered the last four years of long, slogging battle as he sat by the fire in the main hall. The grim battles against the lich of T'ien Chi. The months of despair when it seemed that his...

Re: New Magic Paths in Dom3?

I'd love weak Angels as "messengers of the Lord"- especially if they could bring gems, magic items, etc. with them.

Heck, I'd like that ANYWAY, as a "utility" spell- like the ones that give +1...

Re: AI: Castle Building Algorithm

I don't know much about how the AI places troops- would it be possible to put an "extra army" in a place that is being castled?

This is to prevent the AI losing forts before they're completed. . .

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

Lightless Lantern at Con-6? I may have to research that instead. Because a Smith can build a Lightless Lantern and be twice the researcher. . . plus whatever other wonders Construction-6 delivers.

Re: Wish Questions

If you tried a wish, and it didn't work, and there's a misspelling in what you wished for. . . it's not ENTIRELY unreasonable to ask if that's cause and effect .

Re: What it will take for me to purchase Dom III

A suggestion on Dom III:

If my guy with the 2-handed flail loses an arm, could he have a backup dagger for when I throw him into the maw of battle again? Because seeing a guy in Ulm's finest...

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

What do you recommend for walking shields? The Crusher hasn't really been fieldtested- it looks like it is NOTHING but a damage sink, and might get ignored. The Clockwork Horrors were fun (SO fun!)...

Turns 25-31: Quagmire.

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

I'm going to switch to a much more general "Things of Note" format, as I am putting in too much detail.

Re: Ulm SP AAR- Swords Vs. Sorcery

Shopping- Two Smiths (they're expensive, but once I can cast Blade Wind one smith should be the equal of twenty archers), and troops. I convert another 5 Earth...

I also have my notes with me for this post. I think I'm playing The Desert Eye- it's hard to tell, because of the wraparound. Which I didn't realize the map...

I like Ulm, in concept. Poor magic, low morale, expensive units. . . I can see why it has a poor reputation in practice. However, I've done some thinking and I've developed a Three Phase Plan. [Phase...
